"Laura was so much fun to work with. I was worried, especially having two very young children (a toddler and infant) that it would be mass chaos - but she was so great with both of them, had so much energy trying to get photos with both of them looking at the camera and smiling (not an easy feat)."


– The Du Ohana

"We had so much fun shooting with you!! You made the whole experience so much fun and natural! we absolutely ADORE and LOVE the photos!"


– the rosa ohana

"What a sweet surprise in my inbox this morning!!! These are just so precious. Love them!!"

Like what you see? Yay! When it comes to photographers, there are endless options, so it's important that you LOVE my work.

The first step in your photography experience to to reach out and inquire about your dates. And while you do, please tell me more about yourselves and your kiddos. I LOVE getting to know you!

Once you inquire, you can expect a response in 1-2 business days. I’ll share complete pricing and more info to help you further determine if we’re a good fit.

Wanna get your session on the calendar? Once we select a date and time (sunrise or sunset), I'll send a link to book online. I simply request a retainer and a signed contract to make it official.

Good photography is about SO MUCH MORE than showing up and snapping pretty pictures. A lot of planning goes on before your session, but don’t stress because I will guide you every step of the way.

I help you choose a location, plan your outfits, and tell you everything you need to know for your session date. Oh, and I'm also your certified Hawaii tour guide and happy to help with any questions you may have while planning your trip!

I'll be sure to check in with you 2 weeks prior to your session to answer any final questions, and 1-2 days prior you'll receive a text with a map link and all the final info!

step 03 of 06

You've arrived in Hawaii and you're having the time of your lives. Your photo session should be no exception! I want you to relax and enjoy your time together and trust me to capture all those magical moments. All you gotta do is show up and love on each other!

Worried your kids won't behave? SPOILER: they probably won't! But that's ok! We let the kids be kids and we'll make it fun for them so they can be themselves and their true personalities can shine!

04: session day!

step 04 of 06

I meticulously edit each and every image and deliver your photos in a private online gallery where you can view, share, and download. You'll receive a sneak peek in about a week, and your full gallery approximately 5-6 weeks after your session! A couple weeks later, you’ll also receive a pretty little package in the mail. (Because photos are meant to be printed!)

step 05 of 06

Images this beautiful deserve to be printed!!

Though all of my sessions include your digital images, I hear time and time again that my clients don’t have time to make prints or don’t know where or how to do so. Because of this, I offer heirloom quality prints, canvases, and albums that will look amazing and stand the test of time! Not sure what you need? I'm here for ya!
